About Digitalis Dalmatian Purple
Foxglove Dalmatian displays beautiful purple spotted blooms in its first year. What’s really special, Digitalis Dalmation is probably the earliest foxglove to bloom in my garden, way before the others. They have a uniform, compact foliage and a branching habit that produce magnificent flower spikes. Most universities list Digitalis as a deer resistant plant.

Planting and Growing Digitalis
Make sure your Digitalis “harden off” to cool nights and windy conditions before planting. This requires leaving them outside in a protected area for a few days otherwise, they may wilt after planting. Choose an area in the sun, part shade or shade. Prepare your planting hole by turning the soil at least a shovel size deep and wide and be sure the hole is filled with plenty of organic matter for best results. Remove your plant from its pack and leave the root ball intact. Plant deep enough to cover the top of the root ball. Press down firmly on the soil and then water it in. Consider fertilizing once or twice a season. You can mulch if you like but not too close to the plant to avoid rot. Clip spent blooms for a continuous flush of flowers!
